"Baltic Ave. is better than the other Brown Property. Rents are doubled in Baltic."
"Baltic Ave. is the Hoboken of Monopoly. It is never an end-game property and only should be acquired in petty trades. Brandon Baker's strategies are amateur at best. Buying Baltic will never cut it in the professional scene."
"Baltic Ave. pairs well with the Dark Blues for controlling the GO corner since it's cheap to but houses and only a couple players need to land on it to return investment, it's a great backup plan for a risk Dark Blue Property play."
Baltic Avenue is altogether better than its counterpart, however, Mediterranean is still required for Baltic to reach its full potential. Baltic with a hotel is an even nastier surprise than Mediterranean, should an opponent hit it after passing Go. And even worse : Income Tax follows. The property has the 2nd highest value of any place when fully built, at 72.6%, barely behind Boardwalk at 72.7%. When the lower property only has 4 houses, it goes to 78.94%, with Boardwalk actually lower at 78.43%, making it the best precentage-wise with these settings (and only with it this way).
- Max value: $450
- Baltic Avenue has been referenced on Homestar Runner. In the DVD Commentary for the toon "Experimental Film, made for They Might Be Giants, Strong Bad says, "Man! I wish I woulda swiped some of that black and white cash!" Strong Sad promptly shouts out that the money was monopoly money. However, Strong Bad remains unfazed, and remarks, "Black and white Monopoly money! That stuff is priceless! I'd be livin' on Baltic Avenue!"
- According to Hasbro, in 1972, the Atlantic City Commissioner of Public Works threatened to change the names of the real Baltic and Mediterranean Avenue, but public outcry vetoed the bill.
